This week, we’re again sharing snippets of some of the worst book proposals we’ve ever received. We hope you get a giggle from them like we did. Yes, these are real!

FROM A, UM, SCIENTIFIC AUTHOR?

“I have the firast book ever that can explain gravity. I need a publisher that can publish a unique book he book will markwet itself since it establishes the principles of gravity got the first time”

NOT SURPRISINGLY, HER BOOK TEXT WAS RIDDLED WITH ERRORS, TOO

“Its original, its fascinating and its by a an author with recognition and offers from companies with possibilities.”

FUTURE SPAMMER

“I will buy several email lists and market my book that way.”

COPYRIGHT INFRINGER

“My book contains over 100 photos taken from other websites…”

NOT QUITE SURE WHAT TO SAY ABOUT THIS ONE…

“I already published my book by myself but nobody bought it. But they said it would make a great movie.”

FROM AN ACTUAL BOOK, which is already in production (published by another POD publisher, of course):

“Chapter 2: When Things Go Right
Chapter 3: When Things Go Warong”

SAY WHAT?

“My book fits like a glove!”

AND MORE

“Your site is really good and lots of trafic are comming in your site.”

“i have not pick a title i hope you can help me i what someone i can trust to show me the way to grt this life story aout being a parent out”
